The project involves the construction of a traditional brick and block work building alongside one of the two artificial pitches that were installed in the first phase of the redevelopment. It will have 10 changing rooms for use by the college’s hockey, football and rugby teams, along with visiting teams from other universities.
The ground floor accommodation also includes function rooms. A first floor viewing gallery will be of steel frame construction with an open plan configuration to provide spectators with a 360 degree view.
The target is a BREEAM Excellent environmental rating.
The site extends across a Roman road and ISG is working with a team of local archaeologists, who will be surveying and cataloguing any remains found ahead of main construction work.
ISG’s managing director for London, Stuart Deverill, said: “The project reflects King’s College London’s core focus on quality and environmental sustainability, and similar to all of the institution’s recent developments, the scheme is targeting an ambitious BREEAM rating. ISG’s existing relationship with King’s gives us an excellent understanding of these key drivers and commitments and working collaboratively with King’s College London we can ensure a successful outcome to this major sporting investment.”
